Benjamin Parker, one of our Senior Operations Directors, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, September 27th. He was 21 years old.
In spite of Ben's young age, he was an old soul. His intellectual gifts and adventurous sense of curiosity quickly led him from the field into the front office, where he flourished as our resident IT specialist and master strategist. When listening to Ben speak about his work, and observing how dedicated he was to it, I often lost sight of how young he was. Few twenty-one-year-olds have that effect, but Ben was successfully managing hundreds of properties. He was wise beyond his years.
Ben was a dedicated employee, and a loving brother, son, and friend. He had a tremendous effect on many people's lives, and though now he is at peace, we miss him dearly.
The funeral service will be at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, October 2nd, at Gill Brothers Funeral Chapel
, located at 5800 Lyndale Ave S. Visitation is on Monday, October 1st from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, and one hour prior to the funeral service. In lieu of flowers, Ben's family has asked that memorials be given to The Retreat
in Wayzata, MN.
